Birmingham Children’s Hospital brought some festive cheer to the city last week with a two night Christmas concert at Birmingham Cathedral.
The amazing voices of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir provided the musical entertainment, while guests were treated to a mince pie and glass of mulled wine.
Brave seven year old Joel Sheldon, from Walsall, told his emotive story about his treatment at the hospital for a life-threatening brain tumour. His mum Louise Butler also shared their family’s story and their hopes for the future.
The Christmas Concert hosts were BBC Radio WM’s breakfast show presenter Pete Morgan and BBC presenter Joanne Malin.
Vikki Savery, Public Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Children’s Hospital said: “The Christmas Concert has been a huge success again this year with hundreds of our supporters enjoying the festive entertainment provided by the wonderful choirs across the two evenings. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped make this happen.”
All of the money raised will go towards the hospital’s £4 million Cancer Centre Appeal.
